PUEBLO, Colo.—March 26, 2015—The Pueblo Creative Corridor announces auditions on Saturday, April 18, from 1 to 3:30 p.m., at the Pueblo Riverwalk’s Grand Staircase for artists interested in participating in this summer’s Street Beat. Performers and visual artists of all types are needed: classical, jazz, country, bluegrass, pop, musicians and bands, dancers, actors, comedians, jugglers, magicians, painters, poets, caricature drawers, face painters, weavers and origami makers – you name it, come audition. Everyone in the community is invited to watch the entertainers perform for free.
Last year, 24 acts auditioned and 14 were selected. Selected artists will be offered a contracted, paid, part-time summer position with scheduled performance times (and will need a performance license). As an added bonus, performers average $15 plus in tips. Performers submitting audition forms by April 3, 5 p.m. will be guaranteed an audition spot. Applications submitted after this time or day of, walk-in auditions might be available only if time allows.
Street Beat will take place in the Creative Corridor, June to September. Street performances will be scheduled through the weekdays and weekends to transform the Creative Corridor’s three districts – Mesa Junction, Union Avenue Historic and Main Street – into an outdoor performing and visual arts scene, as in past years.
